Who is Sonny Perdue? Just pick-and-choosing from Wikipedia:
According to a March 5, 2008, proclamation by Perdue, «Among those who served the Confederacy were many African-Americans, both free and slave, who saw action in the Confederate armed forces in many combat roles. According to the Georgia government’s website on Confederate History Month, they also participated in the manufacture of products for the war effort, built naval ships, and provided military assistance and relief efforts…».
On November 13, 2007, while Georgia suffered from one of the worst droughts in several decades, Perdue led a group of several hundred people in a prayer on the steps of the state Capitol. Perdue addressed the crowd, saying «We’ve come together here simply for one reason and one reason only: To very reverently and respectfully pray up a storm» and «God, we need you; we need rain». Earlier that year, on June 28, 2007, Alabama Governor Bob Riley issued a proclamation declaring a week in July as “Days of Prayer for Rain” to «humbly ask for His blessings and to hold us steady in times of difficulty».
In 2004, Purdue sued the Environmental Protection Agency to block environmental regulations on reformulated gasoline. In a 2014 editorial published by National Review, Perdue criticized attempts by «some on the left or in the mainstream media» to connect climate change to weather events. Perdue wrote that «liberals have lost all credibility when it comes to climate science because their arguments have become so ridiculous and so obviously disconnected from reality».
